Her Excellency, the Honorable Margaret Beazley, Governor of New South Wales presented Nadia and Alf with the medals, in recognition of their significant service to the community through tna’s philanthropic initiatives, at an Investiture Ceremony at Government House Sydney. Instituted by Her Majesty the Queen in 1975, the Order of Australia was established as an Australian Society of Honour for recognizing Australian citizens and other individuals for achievements or meritorious service.
Speaking on the occasion, Nadia Taylor, co-founder of tna and the Nadia & Alf Taylor Foundation, said, “This recognition is an endorsement of tna’s mission and values that aims to embrace inclusive growth. We are both, humbled and deeply honoured to be recognized for our endeavours to lend support to the lesser fortunate, especially children and socially excluded groups, through tna’s humanitarian programs. Alf and I may be at the forefront of this, but it is the unstinting support of every tna team member, that allows us to share tna’s success with the disadvantaged.”
The Nadia & Alf Taylor Foundation was established in 2002 and has supported more than 150 charities across 39 countries, focusing on interventions in a range of areas, including education, social enterprise, healthcare, human rights, emergency relief, and animal rights.
